A tennis match can be 2 out 3 sets or 3 out of 5 sets.

For a player to win one set, they must win 6 games. There must also be a difference of 2 games.

The score for a set to 6 could be: 6-0, 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, or 6-4.

After that, a player must win 7-5 or 7-6. The 7-6 score means that a tiebreaker was played once the score became 6-6. The tiebreaker is won by the person who wins 7 points first and wins by 2 points.

six in a set but if its a tie breaker then seven

-------------------------

In some tournaments you must win by 2 games. For example, In Wimbledon a tiebreak game is played if the score reaches 6-6 in any set except the fifth (in a five-set match) or the third (in a three-set match), in which case a two-game lead must be reached

You need 6 games to win a set in tennis but you must win by 2 games. If the score is 6-4, you have won the set but if the score is 6 - 5 you will need to play another game. If the score becomes 7-5 you have won the set and if the score becomes 6-6 you play a tiebreaker.

About 3 games, you need to win a tennis match, but sometimes people do 2 matchs or 1, so basically that's the amount of matchs you need to win a tennis match.
